What We Do

Funeral Choice helps you select the right funeral at the right price for your needs. Families often lack access to clear information on their funeral options, only consult their nearest funeral director and end up paying more than is necessary. With Funeral Choice you can directly compare the services and prices of different Funeral Directors in your area.

At Funeral Choice we do our best to bring transparency to the costs of a funeral. We give you the information you need to prepare for your discussion with a funeral director. You can ask the right questions, see what you are getting and how much you are paying for it.

  • Funeral Director fees for meetings, paperwork and running the funeral
  • Collection of deceased and care prior to funeral
  • Hearse or appropriate vehicle for transport to the funeral
  • Basic coffin

The Funeral Director fees quoted do not include third party costs (often called disbursements). The Funeral Director will guide you through your options. These costs are:

In addition to the disbursements you may want to discuss optional costs with your Funeral Director – these could include:

  • Funeral flowers
  • Memorial (venue hire, catering etc)
  • Memorial headstone
  • Orders of service

How We Got Started

We began as a family company on the Isle of Wight. Following a death in the family we were surprised by how little information there was on funeral costs nationally. We found the cost of funerals hard to understand, and saw that families were often paying more than they needed as it was virtually impossible to compare one funeral director with another. Clearly there was a need for a price comparison site and so Funeral Choice was born.

In the early days we worked closely with hospitals, hospices and charities to produce informative and supportive leaflets. We have maintained those close links in building the Funeral Choice website which we hope you will find helpful and easy to use.

What is a Direct Cremation?

A Direct Cremation is an alternative to the traditional funeral. This involves the cremation of the deceased without a funeral service. A Direct Cremation is generally the most economic option because costs of the coffin, preparation of the body, funeral service and expensive transportation are not included. However, many people choose Direct Cremations for reasons other than expense, for example:

  • - Wanting to have a memorial at a different time to the cremation
  • - Expressed desire from the deceased to not have a ceremony
  • - Individuals with relatives who face big physical or geographical challenges in coming together for a ceremony

The prices quoted for Direct Cremations include:

  • All charges, meetings and paperwork for the cremation
  • Collection of deceased and care prior to cremation
  • A simple coffin and urn for the ashes
  • Cremation fees and delivery of ashes to the family
